We went on this adventure tour through Native’s Way adventures. What a day! We were lucky enough to get picked up in a private transport (our driver was Armando, meeting him was also a great part of this trip, albeit slightly unrelated) who quickly took us to our meeting point. We briefly stopped for coffee and food along the way. Once with the Tenorio River tour group, we met our guides Mario, Jason (Jesus), and David. They took us to the river and Mario gave a detailed safety briefing before we got into our raft with Jason. The rapids started our gentle (mostly class II) before we got into the more intense Class III and finally the vaunted class IV rapids. Jason was friendly, reassuring, and worked hard to keep our raft under control through each rapid. I fell off at one point, which was a common occurrence, and he quickly helped me back into the raft before we proceeded. During the more calm parts of the river, we could take in the beauty of the river & it’s surroundings as it ran through the tenorio volcano national park. It was topped off with a post rafting snack and a delicious lunch back at the original meeting point. The travel to and from the river from the original meeting point is a bit treacherous, but I’m not sure there’s any other way to get people down to these remote sections of the river. My wife and I had a great time, and would definitely recommend this experience to anyone looking for a unique exciting adventure! Thank you to everyone who helped make our experience so memorable!

The rafting was amazing. 7 miles down the river. Couple of stops along the way including a waterfall. The guides were excellent and very fun. The only draw back was the time to get to the site. It was over. 2 hours to get there and 2 hours back from Tamarindo where we were staying. That was the only detractor

Miguel set the tone by appearing before 0630 at our villa in Tamarindo. He briefed us about the drive to Rincón de la Vieja and appropriately stopped for fantastic coffee along the way. What a treat and tone setter. All the way along the route he explained all the local beautiful resources that Costa Rica had to offer. Our rafting trip was well planned since December was kinda low water season. The guides were all on point and very concerned for your safety after all I did get tossed in the rapids and after discovering my tube and life jacket were floating properly, a mysterious hand pulled to to shore where I was able to sort out and right my raft. I really liked how the guides tried to explain the down river hazards when marshalling the rafters before specific hazards. Great job folks. We were retrieved from the river and the guides handed is folded towels to dry off before our return bus trip. We enclosed a fantastic buffet lunch in the tour HQ. After lunch the zip lining crew corralled us and kitted us up efficiently for the next adventure. All I can say was all their processes to prepare you are well streamlined and thought of. My family had a great day. Miguel deserved his tip in US $$ and not Costa Rican coyones. Hahahaha Thanks for the adventure, Miguel!!

Transportation, guides, drivers, lunch service and overall experience was excellent! I know this area was hit hard by Covid due to the lack of tourism and they work hard for every dollar/CRC earned. Grateful for their positive attitudes and living Pura Vida.

The whole white rafting experience was Awesome with a capital "A!" It seemed both dangerous and safe (how is that possible?) at the same time. Me and my boat mate were guided by Captain Flip who's main goal is to keep you IN the water more than you're IN the boat...you can see how much I enjoyed it in the photo as I am literally giving a Thumbs UP while completely submerged in the roaring white water of a Class #4 rapids...and the Casado afterwards--I suggest the pork chop as your protein--is a great follow-up to an even better adventure...be advised, it takes some trekking to get to this wondrous spot so if you're staying in Tamarindo, as I was, it'll take you around 3 1/2 hours to get to the river and then a little longer back because of late day traffic...so, settle in for a long commute but the middle part of the day will blow your mind...fantastic!
